A Day in the Bay of Islands
Enjoy sailing to an island stopover
Sailing charter schedule
Phantom Charters leaves at 10am from the port of Russell, arriving back at 4pm in the afternoon after sailing Bay of Islands. We are also happy to offer exclusive, tailor-made charters to suit your needs. During your trip with us, we will take you to a personal favourite location, featuring island stopovers and snorkelling opportunities. We will stop in a sheltered cove for lunch, giving ample time for a lazy, enjoyable meal before travelling on. Sail with a small group – maximum 10 guests – for a more personal experience.
Catering on board
We cater for any tastes and most dietary requirements, with both vegetarian and gluten-free options available on request. You will enjoy New Zealand cheeses and seasonal fruits, home-made bread, chutneys and sweets while on board with us, and you are more than welcome to bring your own beer or wine if you fancy!
Our lunches have become the stuff of legends around here: and there’s nothing like a day on the briny blue to whet your appetite (pardon the pun!).
Swim, snorkel, explore and discover
Picture yourself sailing to islands in unspoiled beautiful surroundings, turquoise water lapping at your feet, arriving at golden sands untainted by footprints… This is the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. Phantom Charters are your small group tour operators, providing a comfortable and personal sailing experience to many of the Bay of Islands’ ‘secret spots’. Take advantage of your day with us to explore this coastline from a completely new perspective: whether you have a destination in mind, or whether you’d like us to guide you – the choice is yours, the pleasure is ours.
